    Possible Winter edition

    Maybe something good can come of the writer's strike...

    Strike KOs CBS' Men , Six Others; Big Brother Fast-tracked - Strike Watch: How This Season Is Being Rewritten | TVGuide.com

    CBS is reportedly rushing into production an anomalous winter season of its summer staple Big Brother to fill the lineup. This one, buzz is, may have celebrities scheming against each other instead of regular folk. If you consider guys like Todd "Willis" Bridges and Lauren "Julie, Your Cruise Director" Tewes celebrities.

    Big Brother in any form is a good thing ...but I don't know that I'd be that into a "celebrity" version But yes, that would be the only bright spot in all this mess. I hope the strike doesn't go that long though. The writers should get paid what they deserve. With all the new outlets for their product, it's only fair.

    Celebrity shows tend to be the death knell. Celebrity Mole anyone?

    Maybe they could include Rosie & everbody could just beat the crap out of her.

    That would be a great season.

    I know the ratings show that most don't agree with me, but if they're cast right, I enjoy the celebrity versions of these shows. I loved Celebrity Mole. I loved "I'm A Celebrity, Get me Out of Here" too. (I know, I know, I was the only one with that show!). It's all in the casting, and a willingness to stick to the original format of the show instead of altering it because of celebrities.

    That guy from Everybody Loves Raymond was supposedly pushing for a celebrity version a while ago. He has a little more cache than those celebrities mentioned above. He's not the big moneymaker for CBS that he used to be (it was CBS he was on, right?) but I wonder if he would push to be on the show.

    I'd be happy to see a celebrity version of big brother rather than be faced with months of reruns of shows that weren't very good the first time around. I hate this whole writer's strike mess, but reality tv is the one good thing in a tv future that's looking pretty dim at the moment.

    I'm not sure if they will be able to get any actors to do it since SAG is supporting the Writers Guild of America and this would only help the studios.
